Rósa is sent to the remote Icelandic village of Stykkishólmur to marry Jón Eiríksson. His villagers distrust him deeply after the mysterious death of his previous wife Anna, and Rósa struggles to settle, isolated from everyone. She soon fears that the circumstances around Anna’s death were far more suspicious than she first expected, and she wonders if she may soon meet the same fate.
I found this a little slow-going to begin with but it picked up around the halfway mark and I ended up quite enjoying it. The Icelandic setting was unusual and interesting, and you could tell the author had done their research. It was enjoyable to watch the relationships between the characters develop and grow. The ending was beautiful yet sad. Overall, would recommend.
